From Friendsgiving to Noche Buena, this season is all about paying homage to tradition in new and flavorful ways! The Latin American holiday table is no exception. Our highly anticipated dishes, from Ensalada Rusa and Moro De Gandules to the classic sweet potato casserole, make us feel right at home no matter where we spend the holidays.
This season, we’re looking forward to complementing the dishes we already love with new flavors that bring a modern twist. Loisa Head Chef and Educator, Yadira Garcia of Happy Healthy Latina, crafted three delicious sides that will help you bring all the Latin flavors you love to the table in unexpected ways.
Sofrito Brussels Sprouts with Candied Sazón Walnuts
Crisp Sofrito roasted Brussels sprouts pair perfectly with sweet and savory Sazón Candied Walnuts and dried cranberries. This mashup of Latin and seasonal flavor will have everyone coming back for seconds. Plus, easily make it vegan by opting for plant-based butter. >>>
Roasted Garlic Yuca Mash & Encebollado Criollo
This rich, garlicky yuca mash topped with vibrant encebollado–a classic pickled onion condiment– is a fun and unexpected upgrade from classic mashed potatoes for your holiday spread. This side dish is simple to make but full of deliciously complex flavor. The secret? Chef Yadi adds a little of our Organic Adobo to the yuca while it's boiling and a dash to the onions while they're frying. >>>
Crema de Calabaza con Coco y Pepitas
This spiced pumpkin soup recipe is a delicious and aesthetically pleasing addition to your holiday table. Served in roasted acorn squash and topped with pepitas and coconut milk, it's hard to imagine a more seasonal autumn dish! The recipe features our new Salt-Free Sazón and Adobo, allowing you to add as much or as little salt as you'd like. >>>
